Tage in Burma

Author: George Orwell
Publisher: Diogenes Verlag AG
ISBN: 9783257602500
Release Date: 2012-11-20
Genre: Fiction

»Orwell kennen die meisten Leser nur als düsteren ›Big Brother‹-Visionär - die wenigsten wissen, daß der Autor einige Jahre als Kolonialbeamter in Burma tätig war. Vor diesem Erfahrungshintergrund entfaltet er die Geschichte eines britischen Diplomaten in einem burmesischen Außenposten. Lesenswert vor allem wegen der Schilderungen der Landeskultur - und George Orwells bitterböser Abrechnung mit der britischen Kolonial-Mentalität.«

Pigeon English

Author: Stephen Kelman
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827074348
Release Date: 2011-01-29
Genre: Fiction

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ

Der unsentimentale, erschütternde Bericht eines Betroffenen.
